Our latest entreprofessional is an experienced web designer taking a big step toward career independence. He’s employed by a firm and has been freelancing for clients on his own separate from his day job for a while. A couple of large projects were the impetus for him to set up officially as a business. We handled the LLC formation and provided him with contracts he’ll use regularly to provide client service and subcontract some of the work. Congrats!
Our latest entreprofessionals are setting up to apply for “B” corp certification. Know what that is? Here’s the link: http://bcorporation.net. They provide subscription-based point of sale and marketing software to small retail businesses, with a mission to support local markets. We helped set up the company, including the agreement between the owners. And we provided our set of agreements for their use with contractors and clients. Good stuff!
Welcome our latest entreprofessionals, a construction and building manager teamed up with a financial investor. Great combo. They’re looking at changing properties to change neighborhoods. Great mission. As with our other real estate buyers, we formed an LLC for their initial property, with the idea that there will be a separate company for each investment, and prepared the operating agreement for their partnership together. Best of luck with your deals!

Out latest entreprofessional saw an opportunity to expand her existing consulting practice (she’s already an independent entreprofessional) by acquiring a complementary line of business. The new business has a client base and office location, so she’ll be able to step in and promote her services through this venue. We formed an LLC for her to take over the new business. And while we’re at it, we’re setting her up with our contracts for her current practice. Best wishes for success with the new venture!
What do you do when you are skilled and well respected in your work, successful in your career and well-networked in your community? You quit your job and start your own firm! Our latest entreprofessional, a lawyer (yes, another lawyer using our service), is a model for leaving the corporate world to pursue his own thing. We helped with the setup of his professional LLC and preparation of contract terms. Great fun and happiness in your independence!
Our latest entreprofessional is a website developer in his day job and a high-end web application creator in his other day job. He wanted to formalize his “daylighting” projects into a business when he landed a really big piece of work. He’ll use our full Upstart Package, i.e., an LLC so the business has a separate identity and contracts so the various business relationships (primarily clients and subcontractors) are in writing. Good stuff!
Very pleased to announce our latest entreprofessional, a strategic business consultant who works with small and medium sized businesses on process optimization. He’s leaving his corporate job to do his own thing (love that!). To get started legally, we set up his LLC and provided him with our set of contracts for his relationships with clients, subs and vendors, and affiliates. Good luck with the move to independence!
Welcome our latest entreprofessional! He’s an agency guy going out on his own. He’ll use all our tools to run his new business, i.e., customer services agreement to provide his work to clients, contractor agreement to sub out work to others, affiliate agreement to develop referral channels and nondisclosure agreement to protect app ideas of his own invention. Of course, we also set up his LLC. Congrats on your independence!
Our latest entreprofessional is another residential housing investor/rehabber, wisely deciding to place his properties in separate companies when he buys them. This one is for his first purchase. We’re making it easy and cost-effective for him to use a series of LLCs to ensure that liabilities of one property don’t affect his other properties or other assets. Here’s to successful acquisitions!
